The Battle is Lost

There will be no Pelican/Knight woodcut for Kitty.

This is so sad I can barely type it. Kitty has succumbed to the H1N1 virus -- swine flu. She was young and strong and so vibrant just a few short weeks ago, and now she is gone. It hit her fast and it hit her hard, going straight into pneumonia, and she never recovered. She passed away yesterday when they took her off of life support. She was only 27.

Folks, H1N1 is no joke. It is horrifyingly real. We all know young people and they are the most at risk (behind those with pre-existing conditions). Please see that your friends and loved ones get the vaccination when it comes out.

And if you disagree please don't post it here. I am grieving.
